Shure SE846 Impressions Thread - Page 275

post #4111 of 4610

I was thinking of getting a cable with an inline mic and remote control.  Would this affect sound quality? Can anyone recommend a cable, im not looking to spend a lot.

Good point, too! I'd bet they're cheap as hell. You could probably get a little baggie of them from Shure if you asked nicely.

I disagree, people have reported the plastic filters are bloody expensive....

You can probably find one on fleabay for hella cheap, but the quality may not be very good.  The only one that I would recommend that would fulfill your needs is Shure's inline mic and control cable.  You can purchase it here.  

 

However, reviews have said that it isn't that great of a cable.  At least you can replace it, via warranty if anything happens to it.  As for sound quality degrading, I'm pretty sure the inline mic cable will sound a little different, as the stock Shure SE846 cable is silver plated copper.  

 

If you want 'better' sound quality, you can have someone like Ted's Headphone Lounge create you a custom one.  However, you will be spending more (not sure what your budget is).  'Better' sound quality will come at a price, that's for sure.

I disagree wholeheartedly as well.  The plastic filters are bloody, hella, a grip, freakin', however you want to call it, expensive.  

 

Before I purchased my Sensaphonics custom sleeves, my sweat would get in the blue filter and would cut out the sound from my left earphone.  I had to call Shure to purchase new ones, and they didn't publish the price of them online, nor were you able to order them online.  I bought 2 pairs of blue filters.  

 

I don't even want to say how much they were (I did say how much they were in my Sensaphonics custom sleeves review) because I feel ashamed and embarrassed that Shure would charge that amount, and that I bought 2 pairs from them.

If you think the tips are hard to come off with the Shure SE846, you're lucky you didn't bought the Shure SE535. My tips came off very easy the first time.

Shortest reply I've ever seen :).

 

I've found sometimes when people talk about the manufacture date there is a mythical bad (or good) batch

It has been thought the first batch (we are talking autumn 2013) may have seen higher rate of failures. To be clear, there were reports of drivers failing after few weeks use. Am not aware anyone exp dead on arrival. Shure replaced the units - illustrating importance of buying from official retailer. You know it is the real product and warranty support.

Also I own 2x winter 2013 pairs myself and both fine (touch wood)

LFC is correct. The problems were most notable in the first batch in August of 2013 like mine. LFC is also correct that Shure replaced them with very little hassle (I got my replacement in four days). Finally, LFC correctly points out the importance of purchasing from an authorized retailer. All Shure asked me for was a picture of my receipt.


P.S. Joking: Now we know the truth, it was all an attempt by the simians and their minions to stop the inevitable ascendancy of our A.I. overlords.

That's exactly what you want Shure to do because if someone steals your IEM, you don't want the crook to enjoy good CS.

Thanks guys I thought there might be something to it. I've seen this a lot in high end digital SLR's and lenses where some copies produced during a specific time frame were thought to be either problematic or somehow superior.. Mine (bought a couple of weeks ago) are March 2014 so it's all good.

Yep, He is listening to the 846's and oblivious to see no evil and speak no evil.  I suppose he is listening to Gorillaz...I could be wrong though.

There is the cabal we (with our A.I. overlords) must destroy. Know your enemy!

No, the guy in the middle got the SE 846s stuck in his ears and cannot get them out, the guy on the right is covering his mouth to keep from breaking out in laughter, and the guy on the left can't believe his eyes!

is there a cable that is not so microphonic as I find that the stock cable is pretty microphonic I can hear sound when it rubs against anything which is really annoying, I don't know why the cables are like this for a high end iem

Well there are much worse stock cables then the Shure stock cables. If you put your mind focused on finding something it will find it. You hear those noises while listening to music?
